Operational Risk Horizon 2018/19

  • 9 November 2018

Now in its second year, the Operational Risk Horizon lets you benchmark your top current risks and identify emerging risk trends. Participating in the Operational Risk Horizon provides you with insights into the industry's view of today’s operational risk profile, and how it may change over the next three years. Download last year's report to see what type of information and analysis will be in the 2018/19 edition.

About the study

Benchmark your key operational risks

Taking part in the Operational Risk Horizon helps you identify and prioritise the most important risks facing your institution. By comparing risks to those of your peers, you'll be able to validate internal concerns and ensure full coverage of the current key operational risks and the trends driving these risks.

Survey the emerging risk horizon

Identifying new and emerging risks is a challenge consistently reported by our members. This project will allow you to establish the top emerging risks facing your institution and the wider industry over the coming three years.

Focused, actionable information

Unlike other industry reports that have a wider business or banking scope, the Operational Risk Horizon focuses solely on top and emerging operational risks facing the financial services sector. 

Participants will receive:

  • The industry's top 15 current risks
  • The industry's top 15 emerging risks
  • Analysis of how the industry thinks key risks will change
  • Top risks by region

Last year's Operational Risk Horizon study

Forty-four banks and insurers participated in last year's Operational Risk Horizon, submitting 377 operational risks and 282 emerging risks.

We aggregated and analysed these risks, exploring how participants believed the risk landscape would change over the next few months and years.
